Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Ning Yu was tormented by Jason in Ning Chen’s company. Not only that, pressure was high. He could not come up with a decent proposal and was often called out and criticized by Jason in meetings, greatly embarrassing him in front of his colleagues.
On this day, after a company-wide appraisal, Jason was commended for his efforts and given a raise. While Ning Yu and another colleague was called out and criticized.
After the meeting, Ning Yu stormed out of the office building and kicked the green plant next to him.
Just then, a department lead who was singled out and criticized exited. When he saw Ning Yu, he was a little surprised. After some hesitation, he asked, “Do you want to go for a drink?”
Ning Yu didn’t know the person too well, but as he took the initiative to ask, he was compelled to have a drink or two. They went to a nearby bar and got themselves drunk.
As the night went on, they chatted from the bottom of their hearts, full of angst and disappointment at their company.
Like brothers in distress, Ning Yu and the man found themselves suddenly connected through a common suffering.
In the end, the man, who was known as Xiao Kai, asked Ning Yu in puzzlement, “Mr. Ning, logically speaking, your position in the Ning family is about the same as Ning Chen’s. Why did you come to his company only to suffer? Why don’t you just go back?”
Ning Yu didn’t know how to reply. He came to cause trouble, but didn’t expect the change of fortune.
He couldn’t tell his father yet, let alone tell him that he didn’t want to stay in Ning Chen’s company anymore.
Because he had taken away Ning Chen’s company’s research and development materials and made a mark in front of his father. Now he was counted on to bring in more good news. How could he say that he wanted to leave Ning Chen’s company at this time? Wouldn’t that be admitting defeat to Ning Chen?
“I’m not going back. I want to stay!” Ning Yu said. The more he spoke, the angrier he got. He downed another shot.
“Well, I’m not staying. I’m leaving. I happen to have quite a lot of project information on hand. I might even be able to sell it for a good price.” Xiao Kai took another sip and cursed, “You call that a workplace? I call that hell!”
Hearing Xiao Kai’s words, Ning Yu immediately sobered up. “What information do you have?”
“The Qilitang Subway Station. I’m in charge of it with another person,” Xiao Kai replied.
Ning Yu knew about this project. Ning Jie also wanted to bid for this project, but Ning Chen was much more prepared. If nothing unexpected happened, Ning Chen’s project team would be the one to reach a cooperation agreement with the government.
“You said you want to leave? Then why don’t you join my father!” Ning Yu suddenly became energetic and said excitedly.
Xiao Kai was stunned for a moment and looked at him. “Are you sure? Then can I still be a department manager? I don’t want to be an errand boy.”
“No, I’ll tell him that you’re my man. My dad trusts me very much. When the time comes, I’ll let you be the manager directly!” The doubt in Xiao Kai’s eyes made Ning Yu’s self-esteem a little frustrated. He hurriedly patted his chest and said.
If he could get the project information from Xiao Kai, he might be able to let Ning Jie seize the project away from Ning Chen’s hands. By then, he would have made a great contribution!
Xiao Kai hesitated for a long time and finally nodded. “Alright then. Talk to your dad and we’ll see. If it’s possible, I’ll bring the information over!”
They were so drunk, they called a few ladies over and kept singing for the night. When they left the bar, they were now each others’ best buddies.
Ning Yu went back and told Ning Jie about this. Ning Jie didn’t think much about it. When he heard that Ning Yu could get the subway station project, his eyes immediately lit up. After all, it was an extremely lucrative project.
“Okay, I’ll leave this to you. You have to do it for me!”
Soon, Xiao Kai went to Ning Jie’s company and became a department manager. For a time, his relationship with Ning Yu became better, and he followed Ning Yu and called him boss all day long.
When they had a drink together, Xiao Kai asked how much money Ning Jie’s company would make if they did this project.
“More than four billion,” Ning Yu blurted.
“That much? The government’s investment is only 20 billion.” Xiao Kai was shocked.
“Are you stupid? Can’t you make money from it? After you make money, build it slowly. Later on, the government will have to invest more. When that time comes, it will be another sum of money.” As Ning Yu learned from his father, he was already familiar with making dirty money.
“Is this how you earn from other projects too? Oh my god, you’ve opened my eyes. From now on, I’ll be at your service till time’s end!” Xiao Kai exclaimed.
Ning Yu was somewhat pleased with himself. Drunk, he hooked his arm around Xiao Kai’s shoulder and said, “For example, the project of building a village road two years ago. We built it but made sure it wasn’t up to par. Therefore, it had to be repaired year after year. And we earn lots every year, easy money, eh? The government doesn’t care much. They have money. They won’t be reluctant to invest in such policy matters…”
The more Ning Yu spoke, the more pleased he became. He didn’t notice the coldness in Xiao Kai’s eyes at all..
